Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

This will work with both Truck V1 and truck V2

Telescope driveshaft to go along with the helical gearbox. Input for 4mm shaft at either side, screw the joints together with 3mm grubscrews. 4mm long ones will work but 6-8mm is probably better.

You can see a demo of the complete truck here:

Edit 2016-03-12: Added U-joint1_PIN.stl, this is the same as U-joint1 but with a 1.5mm hole for a through-pin instead of grubscrews, this seems to work better on the output shaft from the gearbox. Requires drilling through the metal shaft so it's a bit more work.
Edit 2016-04-24: Reinforced U-joint1 and U-joint1_PIN a bit, also added a longer u-joint3b.

3D printing nerd and wannabe-engineer. Making random projects from RC trucks to nerf guns, interested in pretty much anything technology related.

Top projects are my RC vehicles:
3D printed half-track truck
-Fully articulated and driven treaded vehicle.
3D printed RC truck V3
-4x4 truck with full drivetrain model.
3D printed RC buggy V2
-RWD race buggy
3D Printed RC truck V4
-6x6 standalone truck chassis to build upon.

Been 3D printing since 2013, lately moving into mechanical design and metalworking.

I do youtube videos about most things I make.
